Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I realized a few months ago that I don't have a ton of cookie recipes on my blog. And the majority of them that are on here, are from quite awhile ago. That doesn't mean I don't make cookies - I just make a lot of the same recipes over and over! I also realized I've never shared my favorite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies recipe with you! So here we are.

I am pretty much always on team "Chewy" when it comes to cookies. I mean, I'll never pass up a crunchy cookie but I love a good chewy cookie. These chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are no exception.

Ingredients in Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies



Brown Sugar




Old Fashioned Oats - this lends a chewier texture to the cookies than quick oats, although you can use quick oats if that's all you have.

Baking Soda



Chocolate Chips - I use a combination of semisweet and dark chocolate chips.

Tips for Oatmeal Cookie Success

Chill Your Dough - It's definitely worth the extra 30 minutes to chill the cookie dough after making it and prior to baking. It keeps the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies a bit thicker and they won't spread as much.

Use a Combination of Semi-sweet and Dark Chocolate Chips - I love dark chocolate but also wanted some chocolate chips that were a little sweeter and I loved the combination of the two

Bake Until Slightly Golden - watch the cookies carefully at the end and only bake until they start to turn golden on the edges - they will set up more once they cool!
